About the Drug Peddlers
Identified as Vikas who is a resident of the Chandigarh city and Sonu Goyal, hailing from of Mohali city of Punjab, the drug peddlers were operating within the tricity spreading the menace. Being residents of tricity, the local support generated by them is a big issue that has been curbed now post the arrests made. There is no such threat that could surface and spread its wings without any local support. Providing that aid to many, the evil had spread like plague in the entire region.
